GEAR REVIEW: .COM FREQUENCY DIVIDER by STG SOUNDLABS

com_stg_reviewThis Frequency Divider outputs +/-5volt signals 1 and 2 octaves below the input frequency – similar to a Roland SH-101.
It has an adjustable Pulse Width which is output at the original frequency, -1 octave and -2 octave.
Since all outputs are +/-5volt it can be used to drive CV inputs.
It also mangles regular audio which is effected by the adjustable Pulse Width – AND outputs the mangled audio as +/-5volt…so you can use this to inject some mayhem into your modular’s CV inputs – this thing ROCKS!

Writing bass, lyrics and being original

Lolita from our Forum asked me this question:

http://krankhaus.net/forum/index.php?topic=11171.0

Um, basically, how do you keep your songs sounding original? Even if you listen to diverse range of music, how do you keep your songs sounding like your own?
Like, whenever I try to write a song I’ll come up with a cool bass line(because the bass is my main instrument), then stop and realize, ‘oh damn, that sounds just like that Marilyn Manson song or that Emilie Autumn song.’ And I’ll try re-arranging it, but I’m always afraid that I’ll write something great then realize too late that it sounds just like another song. Or I’ll not realize it at all and publish the song, then later get a bunch of people accusing me of copying a part of someone’s song.

Roland SH-101

Roland SH-101 (Wall Mounted, Bad Paint Job)

Brand: Roland
Model: SH-101
Link: http://www.vintagesynth.com/roland/sh101.shtml

BLURB:
This is my oldest synth!!! It was the second synth I purchased.
The custom paint job was allegedly done by FRANKIE KNUCKLES (!!!) during the early 90s at a bush rave (Doof) near Byron Bay – back in the day when “Raves” and glow sticks were cool. This horrible paint job also acts as insurance…no-one wants to steal it.

I like your old stuff better than your new stuff…

I’m on an (insert “old and established” artist here) binge. Everything from his first demos to the latest stuff – nearly 30 years of amazing music. His old stuff is raw, experimental, full of mistakes, poor production and AWESOME.

His new stuff is clinically brilliant, but lacks something. Like he’s lost that edge that comes with learning, making mistakes and not giving a f*ck.
Don’t get me wrong, i think the guy’s brilliant and he’s been a profound influence on me and millions of others.

STUDIO SNAPSHOT : The OberMoog

Brand: Oberheim and Moog (allegedly)
Model: The mythical “OberMoog” Pro-type *Modular* Synth made by Moog and Oberheim
Link: NO LINKS EXIST.

BLURB:
I bought this in an auction after we lost the bid on a MiniMoog (the Obermoog started our modular addiction!!). The guy we bought if from told me he bought it in Germany in the early 80s.
